Everything seen…

Everything had…

Everything known…

-Arthur Rimbaud, “Departure”

 

With neuroimaging mapping the brain’s pathways of thought and emotion into knowable

terrains, the NSA’s omniscience, Google’s purchase of surveillance companies DropCam and

Nest, big data integration and quantification, and the constant objectification of life via digital

photography and social media, the assertion of interior space and visionary possibilites is all

the more important. New Hells juxtaposes this interior, psychological space with work that

addresses current developments in bio-technology, social engineering, virtual fantasy,

corporate culture, and sexnology. If, as D.H. Lawrence writes, “To know a thing is to kill it,” New

Hells is concerned with what’s still breathing.
